Foodsafety.gov: Salmonella and Egg Safety Information Site
Foodsafety.gov: Salmonella and Egg Safety Information Site – Although most people have heard about the salmonella scare and the ensuing egg recall, many are not sure where to go to find the facts about the recall. In order to curb this, the government has set up a website that will contain all of the necessary information involving the recall.
FoodSafety.gov is the gateway to recall information and other general food safety information. It was created to help individuals find information about keeping their food safe. It also has information provided by a number of agencies including the Food Safety Inspection Service, the US Department of Agriculture, and the US Food and Drug Administration.
Even President Barack Obama contributed to the website, giving his opinion on how people can ensure that their food remains safe.
“There are certain things only a government can do. And one of those things is ensuring that the foods we eat are safe and do not cause us harm,” Obama says on the website.
If you are looking for the most up to date recall information, the website is the appropriate place to head. They have all of the information to help you determine whether or not you need to return the eggs or milk that you just purchased that may have been recalled, along with other information.
Keep in mind that just because cooking the egg thoroughly kills salmonella, that doesn’t mean that you should take the risk. As of now, all of the recalled eggs can be taken to the store they were purchased at for a full refund.
